MVC :: View The Modelstate Errors In Action Method?

for debugging purposes, how do I see the ModelState errors from codein the action method? ModelState.IsValid returns false. I want to copy the error messages to a variable so I can display them in the debugger.

MVC :: ModelState Errors Not Being Displayed In View?
My problem is that though there are values in the modelstate, the error messages are not being displayed in the View. What is wrong with my code?

ModelState Missing Errors?
I have another weird scenario for you all. I have an edit action that is exhibiting odd behavior. First, the model being bound has this one int property that get's it's value from a text box. I then test it's range and so forth. But here's the oddity, if text is entered, the internal validator knows there's an error, yet 0 is bound to the actions incoming model. When passed back into the view for re-display, the box is correctly highlighted, but no error message is in the summary for it, and the old value (the text entered) not the value passed in by the bound model (0).

How To Add Errors To ModelState Using The Correct Key
I want to perform some simple form validation in my controller.

Here's an excerpt from the controller action:


It appears that must use a string as the error's key. Is there a way i can generate the corect key from the model, or should I just check for what input name Html.PasswordFor(x => x.NewPassword) returns?

Showing Modelstate Errors While Using RenderPartialToString?
Im using the following code:


To return a partial view and a form through JSON. It works as it should, but as soon as I get modelstate errors my ValidationSummary does not show. The JSON only return the default form but it does not highlight the validation errors or show the validation summary.

Am I missing something?

This is how I call the RenderPartialToString:

string partialView = RenderPartialToString(this.ControllerContext, "~/Areas/User/Views/Account/ChangeAccountDetails.ascx", new ViewDataDictionary(avd), new TempDataDictionary());

PropertyName Not Showing Up In ModelState.errors
Imagine, a model like this:

public AddressType[] Address { get; set; }
internal class AddressValidation : ValidationAttribute
public override bool IsValid(object value)
//Assume we are valid
var isValid = true;
//Cast to something useful
var addresses = (AddressType[])value;
var defaultAddresses = addresses.Count(a => a.AddressCode == AddressCodeEnum.@default);
if (defaultAddresses == 0)
ErrorMessage = "One address must be the default address";
isValid = false;
else if (defaultAddresses > 1)
ErrorMessage = "Only one address can be the default address";
isValid = false;
//Return the result
return isValid;

When the model is validated by the controller, any of the subordinate addresses are properly validated and any errors are returned as modelstate errors. However, the custom attribute's error is never added to modelstate, even though it validates false. It seems as if this should work, the validation is called and I can step through it - it just never gets added to modelstate.

C# - How To Call A Javascript Method After Action Or From A View
i just want to be able to call a javascritp subroutine on the client, after the server has done its thing (when an action completes or control goes to the view, i'd dont mind calling the js from the view either).

for some reason, even vs2010 doesn't let me put breakpoints in <% ... %> tagged areas between <script...> and </script> tagged areas. i for this reason can't figure out whats going on and how it's running things. here is what i've put in my view, and the javascritp should run, but it doesn't....

im just trying to call "RunOnceRoutines;" but it's not getting called!

the 2 questions: how on earth do we call javascript methods from server, and where is all this lovely javascript debugging i've heard about since vs2008? no where to be found!

MVC :: Returning View When ModelState Not Valid
I've written aView (form) that hasa section with two radio buttons and a blank <DIV> block that will dynamically be updated. When one radio button is clicked, a<DIV> on the page is updated with fields specific to that radio button option. When the other radio button is clicked, the <DIV> on the page is updated with fields specific to that radio button option. To determine what content gets displayed when a radio option is selected, I call a JavaScript function and set the content appropriately using jQuery.Pretty easy so far. Let's assume that the User has toggled the radio buttons and filled in some data.Further down in the form, the User has entered an invalid e-mail address. When the User submits the View, the ModelState is invalid. If it is invalid, I return the View.


Problem is, when the View is returned, some of the form fields (that are static) are in place. However, the <DIV> that was previously updated based on User radio button selections is reset to its original state.When we return a View because of an invalid Model State, is MVC smart enough to return the View in it's modified state (in this case, with the modified DIV and dynamically added content)?

MVC :: How To Run A Test And When It Returns A View When ModelState Is Invalid - Nothing Shows Up
I've been working with MVC 2 for awhile and ive done ReturnToAction as well as ValidationSummary - but this is a little different in that my "submit" buttons are controls by javascript/JQuery - i debug the action and it does go into the correct Controller Action but once it passes over RedirecToAction, nothing happens....

My second problem is that my ValidationSummary fails to show - i run a test and when it returns a View when ModelState is invalid - nothing shows up

Is it a problem with my buttons/forms/submit/JQuery?


And the Controller looks like this:


My Services handle things like validation, I pass it the ModelState and a ModelStateDictionary wrapper and add errors - am i adding errors incorrectly?

MVC :: Partial View In Modal Dialog (using Ajax/jQuery) - How To Handle Invalid Modelstate
After wading through quite a few articles on creating modal forms (using partial views and jquery) I got things working fine for my long as you enter a valid login though!

What I did:

Created a partial view containing my login form.

In my action controller, the get action just return a PartialViewResult, which get dealt with by a bit of jQuery in my master:[Code]....

Like I said this works fine. Now the post action of my login check if it's a valid login, and if so send the user to the passed returnurl or the home page.

However, if the validation fails, I now return the partial view again, which work , but the partial get displayed by itself instead of rendering in the modal form that was opened by jquery.

MVC :: How To Use AdditionalFields In Action Method
I've been using the new ASP.Net MVC 3 RemoteAttribute to send a remote call to an action method that had a single parameter. Now I want to pass in a second parameter using the AdditionalFields property:

[Remote("IsEmailAvailable", "Users", AdditionalFields = "InitialEmail")]

Where IntialEmail is a hidden field in the view. The action looks like so:

public JsonResult IsEmailAvailable(string email,string InitialEmail){//etc.}

When the view is rendered, the hidden field is populated, but when the Action method is triggered remotely, the value is an empty string.

I've seen elsewhere case sensitivity may be an issue, so I've ensured the Action method has the same case for both parameters.

MVC :: Explicitly Set Action Method?
I have 2 views for a input operation in my application.

The first view (lets call it view1) submits a form. Based on the form some operations on database is done and second view(View2) is returned with some other data from the database as a model.


Now, since I return a new view and not a action redirect the url is still http://url/View1 but everything works as it is supposed to.

When I submit the form in View2 it calls the View1 action method, not the View2 action method. Probably because the url is still View1.

MVC :: Checkbox Value Not Mapping To Action Method?
I have an action method that accepts an object as it's first parameter. One of the properties of the object is called "InMenu".

The form being submitted contains a checkbox called "InMenu" (Created with the Html.CheckBox helper method). Regardless of what I choose in the checkbox I always get false as the value. If I add a "bool inMenu" parameter to my action method i get an error complaining that "inmenu" is null in the form collection (it's not - it's value is 'true, false'). If i make it 'bool? inMenu' it's always null...

In short checkboxes completely fail in MVC despite me following the most basic of samples. The value in the form collection is just being ignored. :|

Checkbox code:

How do I pass in strings?

routes.MapRoute("MyRoute", "RenderMyThing.aspx", new { controller = "My", action = "RenderMyThing" });

Is there a way I could pass in strings here?

Secondly, how does ASP.NET MVC know that action is my action, and controller is my controller. Like I saw this in samples, and it does work, but isn't it just an anonymous object with no type?

Trying To View Jpg In GridView But Encountering Errors
I tried to follow the example here: [URL] I pointed my .aspx page to Northwind > Employees, because that table already has a field for pictures, and a few data points, so I thought it would make sense to use that. I followed the instructions and set my DataImageUrlField to ProfilePicture.I'm not sure where the images go, or even where 'ProfilePicture' goes, so I created a new folder in my project and named the folder 'ProfilePicture' and put the pictures in there.So, now I have this kind of setup: C:Documents and SettingsThinkPadDesktopWebSite1Profile_Pictureimage1.jpg

Then I loaded the page and all data loads into the DatGrid fine, except for the images. So I copy/paste the code into 'Default.aspx.vb' and I debug and get this error: Compilation Error Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately. Compiler Error Message: ASPNET: Make sure that the class defined in this code file matches the 'inherits' attribute, and that it extends the correct base class (e.g. Page or UserControl)............
